Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge


The Modern Mrs. Darcy challenge is based upon the idea that reading isn't "a competitive sport". It values the quality of the books read rather than the quantity. As such, it's a bit more short and sweet. It embraces the idea that reading is personal and that a "reading list should reflect that".

The challenge comes in multiple parts. Participants can choose to accept the challenge for one list or both.

As with any of the other challenges, each book can be used only once in this challenge. However, books can be used in multiple challenges.
